Wienerwald

(vē`nərvält) [Ger.,=Vienna forest], forested range, NE Austria, just W of Vienna. An outlier of the Eastern Alps, it rises to 2,930 ft (893 m) in the Schöpfl. The best-known summit, however, is the Kahlenberg (1,585 ft/483 m) near Vienna. The beautiful forests, streams, and hills of the Wienerwald have made it a favorite excursion and resort area for the Viennese.
